"Going to the costume style" Carnival Time Tip by mapakettle

Carnival Time, Venice: 67 reviews and 169 photos

  We've seen this couple twice before
by mapakettle

This picture shows the participants heading to the Grand Parade in St. Marks Square. They board gondolas and drift along the Grand Canal, dressed in their finery, playing the part to the utmost, and mugging for the crowd.

Ma Kettle and I held onto this prized location, by sitting along the steps leading from the canals edge. Suggest you lay a newspaper down first, to prevent green algae from soiling your back side. We didn't...

Fortunately, Carnaval time is so crowded, no one noticed our furry green bottoms.

Address: Grand Canal
Directions: Piazza San Marco, Venezia, Italy
